About This Activity

The Grand Valley Triathlon Club would like to invite you to participate in the 2nd annual Grand Valley Tri - a - Tri indoor triathlon. This race is perfect for athletes of all abilities, whether you are a veteran triathlete or want to try your first triathlon without spending all that money on a new bike. All proceeds from the race go to helping the Grand Valley Triathlon Club to raise money for the upcoming season in the collegiate circuit.

Race Details

The race will consist of a 10 minute swim, 20 minute bike and a 15 minute run.
The swim will take place in the Grand Valley Recreation Center pool.  Participants will then have a 10 minute transition to the Kelly Family Sports Center where they will begin a 20 minute bike ride on staionary spin bikes.  The final leg of the race will include a 2 minute transition followed by a 15 minute run on Grand Valley's 300m indoor track.

Before your wave you will need to place your race bag in the designated area right outside the pool area.  Once the swim is done you will grab your bag and follow the transition volunteer to the bike area.  You will only have a minute or two to throw some shoes on quick.  Part of the transition will be on a sidewalk outside as you move from the Recreation Center to the Kelly Family Sports Center.  You will have time to throw on shirts, shorts, bike shoes and anything else once you reach the bike area.


Awards will go to the top 3 overall Male and Females at the event.  There will also be a raffle to give away additional prizes such as free race entries and other goodies.  The awards ceremony will take place at 11:45a.  Last year we raffled off free race entries, mugs and race singlets.  This year we are hoping to get even more fun prizes for everyone.

What to Bring

Participant's should bring a swimsuit, goggles, swim cap, water bottle, running shoes, shirt, shorts and a towel. Optional items include SPD compatible biking shoes for the spin bikes.

Event schedule and times

There will be 7 waves of 12 athletes each.  Waves begin every 25 minutes to prevent overlap with athletes in prior waves.  Athletes should arrive at least 20 minutes before the start of their wave.  This will allow enough time to check in, get your number assignment in your wave and place your bag in the transition area.
